Oct 8 (Reuters) – South Africa’s unit of the world’s top diamond producer De Beers said on Monday it expects to produce 14.7 million carats in 2007, and saw a decline in output of 2 million carats in 2008.

“We are projecting 14.7 million carats for 2007, with a reduction of 2 million carats in 2008 as a result of the lost volume from those operations that we are disposing of,” David Noko, managing director of De Beers Consolidated Mines (DBCM) told Reuters.

De Beers is 45 percent owned by Anglo American Plc
